Seth Meyers Mocks Trump For His Gun Control Meeting: You’re ‘The Magoo!’
Seth Meyers took aim at President Trump for his listening session on school safety and gun reform with lawmakers at the White House this week.
The Late Night host began by ripping Republicans, particularly Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as then-candidate Trump for claiming that President Obama will “take everyone’s guns away” during the 2016 election. He then turned to the listening session when Trump said that he wants to take “the guns first” and then “go through due process” later.
“Republicans got their dream president and now he’s just blurting out their worst nightmares,” Meyers said. “We’re like a week away from Trump driving up to the White House in a Prius blasting the Hamilton soundtrack and wearing a t-shirt that says ‘#Resist.'”
Meyers mocked the president for reportedly referring to his Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “Mr. Magoo.”
“I’m sorry… but Sessions is not Mr. Magoo,” reacted. “Mr. Magoo is an old, incompetent rich guy who gets himself in trouble through ineptitude and short-sidedness and yet through sheer luck and blind confidence never seems to face any consequences… YOU THE MAGOO!”
He also went after Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner over a recent report that his company accepted $500 million from a company whose founder has made frequent visits to the White House, which Meyers called “cartoonishly corrupt.” Meyers slammed Kushner for having his security clearance downgraded from “top secret” to “secret.”
“‘Secret Level’ sounds like something you’d make up to tell a child,” Meyers joked.
